Throw ya diamonds in sky! Jay Z has been tapped to appear on Saturday Night Live when it returns next month. Hov will be the musical guest for the season 43 premiere, set to air on September 30th, and Ryan Gosling will host.
The announcement was made during Thursday night’s edition of “Weekend Update,” which just wrapped a four-weeklong summer run, and echoed on the show’s official Twitter account.

Gosling hosted the show once before in 2015, while Jay Z has graced the stage three times to date. Recent appearances include his solo performance in 2010, where he delivered an eight-minute-long medley that included “Public Service Announcement,” “On to the Next One,” “99 Problems” and “Empire State of Mind.” He also made a cameo during Beyoncé’s set in 2003.
Gosling, who starred in last season’s hit movie “La La Land,” is next set to appear in “Blade Runner 2049,” alongside Harrison Ford, which opens October 6.
